Watch this 1948 Indian Chief Motorcycle Come Back to Life After 40 Years

With finds like this, it’s always intriguing to imagine the story around the find because this Indian motorcycle that hasn’t been started in years has to have some history behind it, right? We aren’t given too much insight as to the background of the bike or what was done to get it ready to turn over, but rather left with the fact that this 1948 Indian hasn’t been tinkered with in quite some time, 40 years to be more precise. Check out the video below from Kiwi Motorcycles in Riverside, California as the classic fires right up and “ticks over like a vintage clock,” as the uploader puts it.
